Allphones, an Australia wide telecommunications retailer, has recently implemented a plan to allow their customers to trade in their old mobile phones in a bid to encourage recycling of the handsets.
Sarah Brown, National Marketing Manager for Allphones explains, “The impact on the environment from old mobile phones being thrown out is huge. Because mobile phones are not biodegradable, they take up landfill for much longer than regular household waste and can put a tremendous strain on the environment.” She continues, “We wanted to come up with an offer that allows our customers to trade in their old phones for credit towards their new phone so we can recycle or refurbish the unwanted handsets.”
The move to offer trade ins on old mobile phones is a win-win for both customers and the environment; the credit, determined by an internal system, can save the customer money on their next mobile phone, while the handset is being disposed of in the most “green” way possible or being refurbished for future use.
The benefits also extend to Allphones as a business, as they will be able to provide their customers with a wide range of options when it comes to choosing a carrier. With brands such as Optus, Crazy John’s, Virgin, Vodaphone, Dodo, Think Mobile and 3 Mobile all available for either pre or post paid plans, customers cashing in their credit from their mobile phone trade in will not be short on choices.
ABOUT THE COMPANY: Allphones are a national telecommunication retailer committed to providing their customers with great prices and sound knowledge. In a heavily competitive market, Allphones have not only managed to be financially successful, but also maintain their integrity and plan for future growth. They believe in providing their customers with as much choice and flexibility in telecommunications all in one place.
